Key government investment, that will support the development of Aylesbury as a Garden Town, has been secured by Buckinghamshire County Council.

The County Council’s application to the Housing Infrastructure Fund was put together with help from Aylesbury Vale District Council and Buckinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership. The award will enable the new Buckinghamshire Council to deliver on objectives set out in the Aylesbury Garden Town Masterplan.

Councillor Bill Chapple OBE, Chairman of the Aylesbury Garden Town Programme Delivery Board, said: “This is fantastic news for Aylesbury, as the investment is absolutely vital to the plans for realising the vision of Aylesbury Garden Town.” “On behalf of AGT I would like to thank our partners for their hard work and dedication in securing this investment. It clearly demonstrates the government’s confidence in our ability to deliver on our priorities.”

“The proposed infrastructure will greatly benefit the future economic growth of the town. It will also support new and existing communities through the development of additional schools and other facilities such as link roads, to help tackle congestion in the town centre.”
